It's definitely a matter of degrees, on all counts if you ask me.

The only way I would disagree with what you posted here is to say, "What makes you think a stage is poorly suited to being a tuned...

I thought we might come to this question. It's a fair one, and I don't have a good answer for it. Over the last couple years I've noticed a fair number of threads or conversations pop up relating...

If you go with the spandex, I'll be very interested in your experience with it. I'm considering it as a starter screen - budget issues.

This is probably true. My own justification for all the sand I used was not just for acoustics, but for isolation. I have filled my stage with sand - nearly two tons of it if I remember correctly. I...

Maybe this will begin to turn the tide. I think HBO has known for a while (several years) that there was a real market for this, but they've been unwilling to upset the apple cart. This is an...

Ralph's review is fair, but I came down on the side of being less pleased with the movie. The acting is largely very good, and the action is well done. The premise is original, I suppose... It just...

I think you guys are coming to the right conclusion; the timbre match of LCR to surround is not crucial, and a competent coaxial is a fine match to a two-way with good off-axis behavior. I don't...
